Barry’s GenSites: Danish Demographic Database
Posted on Sep 19, 2012
Find your Danish emigrants in a database of 394,000 police records from 1868 to 1908, and in census records from 1769 to 1921—11.7 million names in all. The growing index to probates now covers Thisted, Viborg, Aalborg and Randers counties. Hans Christian Andersen himself couldn't have come up with a more magical resource for researching Danish roots.
But it's no fairy tale: nearly 400,000 emigration records (1869 to 1908), almost 13 million census records dating to 1769, probate records, and even info on the former Danish colony of St. Croix. Researchers tracing Danish roots will want to bookmark this page. The "Emigrants" section has infor¬mation on over four hundred thousand people who left Denmark from 1869 to 1908. You'll also find a lot of great information in the "Census" section. Searches, which bring up transcribed entries, are free, but you must pay to get fur¬ther information.
